Vitamin D and thyroid nodules? Why would my levels be low?
I have hypothyroidism at least I was told this. I have 2 small nodules on my thyroid. I was on 50mcg of synthroid daily and stopped taking the meds after 2 years as I didn't find they helped anything and I continued to gain weight, experience syncopey, blurred vision, auras. I keep gaining weight. I stopped meds about 2 months ago and my levels in my blood work were okay and nothing has changed that I can feel.
Only issue in my blood work was vitamin D levels being low. Which doesn't make any sense.
I'm outside 2-3 hours on average daily. I don't use sunblock unless it's really hot and I'm actually usually working with plants and under no screening. I drink 3 glasses of 1% milk daily (sometimes only 2). I eat a healthy diet but my vitamin D levels are low.
I can't seem to lose weight although I work out 3x a week and walk at least 2 miles daily (in the mall if it's raining). I keep gaining and the synthroid they claimed would stop that but it didn't. I also get dizzy, am tired and often confused. Latest symptom is I get fuzzy vision that just goes away and also sometimes an aura in my vision. I see an endo and no help. I've seen a neuro and after tons of tests all they see is too mutch white matter and my brain is older than my age (45). He just prescribed vitamins COQ10, B and wants me to get a spinal tap which I don't like the idea of at all. He agrees my memory loss is there but no conclusive reasons. He basically sent me on my way after telling me take more vitamins....
I just don't like taking supplements and can't understand why my body isn't getting the D. I realize it may be the cause of some of my symptoms now although the endo or primary should have told me this.
